Wrist relaxation exercises help reduce psychological stress!
We often massage our face, back and nape… but we rarely pay attention to our wrists. Wrists and fingers are also tired and also degenerate like other parts, they are also vulnerable to fatigue, pain, stiffness, and arthritis of the hands.
At the beginning of the week, Drinkizz wants to give you an exercise to help relax your wrists. This is an important relaxation exercise, especially for office workers who often use computers.
What condition does the use of the computer cause?
Repeated typing on the keyboard and moving the mouse causes the right wrist joint to work a lot. These manipulations are performed with high frequency and for a long time, leading to numbness, swelling, pain, and cramping in wrist muscles or joints. (1)
The typical symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome is pain and numbness in the palm or forearm due to compression of the median nerve. If the condition is mild, it will feel like a pins and needles in the hand; More severe, feel very painful in the hand, sometimes burning and aching both forearm and arm, weak and numb hand. (2)
As mentioned by Drinkizz before, prolonged pain causes the body to produce the stress hormone cortisol. When cortisol is high, antioxidant enzymes become less active, making it impossible for the body to balance free radicals in the body. This leads to lack of energy, fatigue, aging and disease.
